I'm working on a piano that has had a lot of 'rigging-up' done to it. I'm trying to get the lyre off but, after removing all of the screws, it won't budge. Is there a secret to it or has someone glued it?

I once had a piano where some mover had stapled a card to the top of a lyre before putting it on, and that kept it from sliding. We damaged it pretty badly before we got the lyre off. It only takes a little obstruction to jam lyres in place.

Most Kimball's has 2 cams on the lyre. You have to hit the top of lyre in front with your hand or a rubber hammer (use protection not to damage the wood) to get it to slide back. The legs have the cams as well. They usually have to go to the inside.
